The true mettle and value of a musician is how naturally he can perform live. And on stage, Billy Joel is one of pop music's best, a seasoned veteran who's genuine, at ease and funny. ...For a couple hours, Joel and his amazingly talented band recreated the sounds, the music and solos, and the lead and backing vocals, as strong as the records, for some 23 songs. And as we all filed out after the show, we knew for two hours, we were all one. We were all friends -- with a commonality. Because perhaps the greatest joy of Billy's music is how it brings people together. We all knew every lyric. We were singing right back to him. And we felt like he was a pal: a relatable, funny pal, who made it easy to come along for the ride, regardless of whatever kind of mood we were in that night. Yes, we'll meet you anytime you want, Billy. - The Baltimore Sun

Billy Joel never gets old. Seriously. His music, his persona (so cool, so witty, so charming on stage), his legacy, his body of work, the way he takes command the minute he walks out on stage -- taking his audience with him on a nostalgic musical journey that keeps on giving long after he makes his exit -- is proof that artists who have real talent will endure for decades (he's been at it for roughly 50 years).

Billy, so excited to see your show in philly on Saturday! I am coming with my husband who hasn't seen you play in a very long time. He's just recovered from a long illness so just the fact that he can go is a BIG deal! His favorite song is Miami 2017 so I really hope you'll play it on Saturday. In the late 80s he once went to see you by himself because all his friends were into hair metal and didn't think you were cool... But look who stood the test of time! Smiling If you play Miami 2017 he will so love it, and I would love some deep cuts from glass houses- sleeping with the television on, I don't wanna be alone anymore,... We're also going with my dad who would love to hear summer highland falls and angry young man.of course we will be singing along and loving every minute of it no matter what you play ..but Whoever is moderating these messages please please please pass along to billy and make our dreams come true!!!

Having this been my 22nd Billy Joel concert, and planning to attend my 23rd in August at MSG on 8/7, there are clearly certain songs that Bill considers staples. While I've noticed that you sometimes throw in some less popular songs (including Zanzibar, which has ironically become a concert staple), I am really looking forward to hearing songs that would show the depth and breadth of your catalog. Although I love the songs, I could live without hearing live again Piano Man, Pressure, and We Didn’t Start the Fire.

May I humbly ask that your 8/7 MSG show consider a more unorthodox set list? After much deliberation, here would be my dream setlist in alpha order, which can also be found here: http://bit.ly/1uFnD2C

The Ballad of Billy the Kid
Big Man on Mulberry Street
Code of Silence
I Don’t Want to be Alone

Miami 2017
New York State of Mind
The Night Is Still Young
Only the Good Die Young
Prelude/Angry Young Man
The River of Dreams
Rosalinda’s Eyes
Say Goodbye to Hollywood
Scenes from an Italian Restaurant
Sleeping with the Television On
Stiletto
The Stranger
Summer Highland Falls
This Night (our wedding song)
